Our community awareness trainings are designed for people of all ages in your community. Let’s be honest: we are faced with health and safety emergencies when we least expect them. From teens to adults, everyone should be prepared to respond in a moment’s notice. The community awareness trainings will provide you with the resources you need to prevent, prepare, and act in the face of an emergency.
It’s best for instructors to have background knowledge and experience in the topic they wish to train on. There are three ways they can provide training:
In terms of using a 3rd party'S safety training materials (like our community awareness training kits on CD or our community awareness online training classes), OSHA does not recognize one company over another. They simply state that ‘training needs to occur’ and ‘here are the things a community awareness operator should be trained on.
When we do live training or offer community awareness training online, people often assume we are the ones certifying the trainees. This is not true for any training company. We are simply assisting the instructor by providing live community awareness training or the training materials needed to help them certify their own trainees.
The online community awareness course takes the place of the classroom portion. Many people prefer online training because they know exactly what community awareness training the operator will receive. In live classes, the training sometimes varies. A written exam is included at the end of our online training courses. After the community awareness class and exam are finished, you and your instructor will have immediate access to a practical evaluation checklist. This can be printed off and used by your instructor to help him or her evaluate you. When the practical evaluation is done, they can sign it and file it with your exam.
It is ultimately up to the instructor, who is also responsible for certifying their trainee, to decide what a passing score is. If an instructor chooses to pass their trainee at 80% on the community awareness exam, that’s fine. But what if a question or two among the 20% missed could lead to an accident or death? Is it worth it? Our recommendation is that you always go over any missed questions with your trainees—even if they just missed one. Once they understand the principle missed, have them write their initials by the correct answer. That way, you are protecting them and those around them from potential accidents in the future.
